About Us

Proudly Made in Canada. 

Turning and topping heads for over 37 years! Mad Cap Hats feature the original designs of Tori Capes, Certified Milliner (George Brown College Fashion).


Mad Cap Hats is us. We are Tori and Adrian Capes.

Each hat is designed and created by hand, from their lakeside studio in South Frontenac, Ontario just west of Westport, ON. Our hats are made with style and comfort in mind and inspired by the lakes and trees and woodland creatures that surround us everyday!
During our long career we have met many customers at juried artisan events around Canada. A fixture at some of the biggies, including the annual One of a Kind Show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In the summer we would frequent smaller festivals in Ontario with our sun hat line. See us on Youtube and learn more about our company with this link here as we are interviewed in Sarnia, Ontario during Artscapes Sarnia in 2019.
We  launched our own Youtube channel in the spring of 2022 and began a journey of teaching and sharing our passion for hats, our tips for sewing and design and many of our original patterns. You can subscribe now to the channel and begin your own journey into "Hat School" .Subscribe here!
In the Fall of 2023 we will begin hosting students and guests in our onsite education bnb, lakeside near Westport, ON. Learn how to make your favorite hat from our growing library of videos/digital patterns and splash in the lake, forest bath and enjoy the ambience of one of Ontario's most scenic and welcoming areas. Our guest suite is cottage luxurious and can sleep 3-4 comfortably. Make it a fun girl's adventure vacation! Breakfast is included (Adrian was a super host on Air bnb before we moved here in 2016). Campfires and a sky full of stars, the deer grazing in the field next door are included too!! Find more info here.
Thank you for visiting our site and looking at our work. Mad Cap Hats are never mass produced and are designed and handmade to last for years of enjoyment.
